NBCLX Announces Premiere of ‘Dying to Be Wrong' Docuseries

In a deeply divided Texas town plagued by mistrust of the public health authorities, some say the COVID death toll is a hoax, or greatly exaggerated. Others are left picking up the pieces after a loved one passes.

Dying To Be Wrong, a special four-part mini-documentary series premiering next week in LX News at 6:00pm and 9:00pm Eastern Time. LX News examines an America divided by COVID-19. NBCLX Storyteller Cody Broadway goes back to his hometown to capture the stories of people reshaped by the pandemic — from those choosing to live life by faith over fear, to local medical officials facing severe burnout.

NBCLX is available on over-the-air TV, on cable, on your favorite streaming platforms and at LX.com. Click here to find out where to watch NBCLX in your area.
